As we traverse the long path through multiple incarnations from anava marga, awakening to charya, then discovering the love of kriya marga, then the inner honesty of yoga marga, we are so inspired by the exemplars of the jnana marga, the swamis, the saints. Jai Gurudeva !
Religion needs to be of the present. Mankind is evolving spiritually; mass consciousness is rising. When we go to the temple, in the right spirit, contributing devotion and prana, being open to the blessings of the Deity; it purifies the mind. The Hindu religion focuses on the mind; purifies it; controls it, subdues the ego, makes us more humble.
